Catalytic Converter Thefts At An All Time High

04 March 2021 - 11:23 AM

A neighbor got his Prius stuff ripped off last night. I was shocked at how easy and how common this is.

...the materials found in catalytic converters are, quite literally, more valuable than gold. The price of rhodium, one of the precious metals found in catalytic converters, has soared from less than $650 an ounce around 2015 to almost $22,000 an ounce in 2021. That’s more than 10 times the price of gold.

One more plus for driving electric. Apparently in our city, some of this stuff happens in broad daylight. Learn something new every day.
